This Week...

I saw piglets!!!!!!!!!! PIGLETS! So I love any baby animals, well any animals really but I have a particular fondness for teeny ickle chubby piglets. How cute! (For those of you in or near Carlisle, they are at Dobbies Garden Centre go see, go see!)

Well I don't quite know how anything else this week could possibly top the piglets, but here is some other stuff that happened...

I really enjoyed Emma's post on A Beautiful Mess about her everyday make-up routine.  Everyone reads this blog right?  If you don't then you simply must! But this post was resonant this week with me because I'm really trying to break out of my usual make-up and try new things.  I think I need some make-up lessons though!  I was asked by a lady at work recently if I ever wear make-up (I had put a full face on that morning!) So I figure I need to do something a little different... (Pic source: http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/)

I really enjoyed Gala's post about choices.  I do really enjoy Gala's blog, it is so inspiring, she gives some really useful advice.  This post was all about how we have too many choices and how it makes us actually get less done.  Go read her tips to make your life more productive.  (Pic Source: www.galadarling.com)
I got a blog award!  The very lovely Miss Beatrix nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award and I am super grateful.  Thank you very much. Go check out her blog, it is really pretty, she shares my love of Beatrix Potter and she posted this week about Slyvanian Families, gosh I LOVED them when I was little.  My sis and I would spend hours creating little stories for them, remember dearest? hehe.

So, as Anna's post states, I need to follow the rules to accept this award, so here goes...

1. Add the award to your blog.
2. Thank the blogger(s) who gave it to you.
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4. List the rules.
5. Award to 15 bloggers.
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

7 Random things about me...
  1. I am a mag'aholic and buy lots of trashy sleb magazines each month and can't seem to stop. 
  2. My toes are 'apparently' weird and freakishly bendy.
  3. I have a phobia of tissue.
  4. I used to get Christmas presents from The Queen.
  5. I am drawn to anything with polka dots and I'm super jealous of ladybirds!
  6. It's an alien concept to me to have the desire to eat an animal.
  7. I am finding writing 7 things about myself pretty difficult! haha.
I am awarding the following lovely bloggers...


These are in no particular order, I do genuinely love each and every one and they are on my daily reads list.  Go check them all out, I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Happy Friday everyone! x
